Event Description

3 cycle routes for all abilities, 16, 27 or 53 miles

Many of us cycle to enjoy our natural environment and head for places such as the hills of Surrey and Sussex. What many do not realise is that landmarks such as Leith Hill just 25 miles from Hackney in designated areas of outstanding beauty have been opened up by the government to companies to ‘Frack’ for oil and gas.

Across the country communities are organising to stop hydraulic fracturing. It contaminates and wastes precious sources of groundwater, pollutes the air with toxic chemicals and contributes to accelerating climate change with greenhouse gas emissions. Roads where we can safely cycle are being clogged up by vehicles carrying drilling rigs, fracking fluids and gallons of water.

‘Le Tour de Frack’ is to raise awareness and protest against fracking on our doorstep. Starting from Meadowbank, Dorking, Surrey there are 3 routes of 16, 27 or 53 miles touring the drilling sites of Surrey and Sussex.

Regular SW trains from Waterloo / Victoria direct to Dorking (55mins) no need to book your bike. 

Choose your ride and help put a spanner in the spokes of the fracking companies.
